The Texas Association of Museums is dedicated to fostering educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities for all Texans. It accomplishes this, through service to its members, by providing a communications network, sponsoring educational programs, and encouraging adherence to professional standards and practices.

TAM's monthly Online Newletter is a benefit of membership. The newsletter includes the latest museum news from around the state, association news, personal notes and updates on Annual Meeting events and activities.

The Texas Association of Museums is pleased to offer the Third Edition of The Museum Forms Book, which has been edited by Kenneth D. Perry. From loan forms to copyright agreement, this compilation of over 400 forms is an important reference book for museum professionals wanting to evaluate and redesign their own record-keeping procedures.
